FM57 Poppin' Up for Mom

This week the Friday Mashup is teaming up with the Paper Lovin' Gals for a combo challenge. The Paper Lovin' Gals use inspiration photos, so if you can incorporate an inspiration from the photo below into your mashup card, you'll be playing along with both!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project for "Mom, Grandmother, Aunt etc...".
  2. Or Make a project with a " Pop-Up Element ".*
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a " Pop-Up Project for Mom".
  4. Or join in Both challenges and create a "Pop-Up Project for Mom using the inspiration photo above."
*There are many different variations of Pop-Ups... Make sure something pops up when you open your project.

If you've been around Stampin' Up long enough, you might recognize this pop-up card from a few years back, in Stampin' Up's magazine called Stampin' Success, May 2009 issue.  In fact, it was this card I wanted to make for my mom, so I chose this challenge to coordinate with it.  I just needed to change up the colors to match up with the Paper Lovin' Gals challenge.

This is a good reason to use the retiring stamp Fifth Avenue Floral too.  I added Crystal Effects to the stamens of the lily and silver beads to the center of the other flower.

Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Wonderful You, All Holidays; Paper: Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, Naturals White; Ink: Rose Red, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Basic Black, Basic Black marker; Accessories: Crystal Effects, Silver beads, Pearl Jewels, Felt flowers, Color Spritzer Tool, Pink gingham ribbon, Corner rounder punch, Sponge, Crop-o-dile.

Thanks for stopping by!
